Break Time Opens Truck Stop in Bolivar, Mo.
September 7, 2022
MFA Petroleum Company, a subsidiary of MFA Oil, opened a new Break Time truck stop in Bolivar, Mo., on Aug. 26. The store is located at 2505 S Killingsworth Avenue, just off MO Highway 13 in southwest Bolivar.
The 5,800-square-foot store is Break Time’s fourth truck stop. It offers many amenities for truck drivers, including four diesel canopy fueling positions, diesel exhaust fluid pumps, a laundry center, showers, a lounge with free WiFi, and plenty of parking space for big rigs.
The store offers food service options such as burnt ends, pulled pork and ribs from Smokestack Bar.B.Q, premium, Missouri-made ice cream from Ice Cream Factory, Hunt Brothers pizza, breakfast sandwiches, and many grab-and-go items.
“We are excited to bring Break Time to the Bolivar community and expand our presence in southwest Missouri,” says Curtis Chaney, senior vice president of retail for MFA Oil. “We believe the Bolivar area was underserved from a diesel refueling perspective, and we’re happy to address that need.”
The company operates more than 70 Break Time convenience stores, including nearby locations in Strafford, Mo., and on E. Grand Street in Springfield, Mo. Break Time plans to open another Break Time store on W. Republic Road in Springfield in late 2022.
Break Time would like to thank the Cribbs family of Bolivar for helping identify a location to build its newest store.
“We appreciate the Cribbs family for contacting us to discuss an opportunity to bring a Break Time to Bolivar,” Chaney says. “Their suggestion put the wheels in motion for us to construct this store.”
